The Police Benevolent Foundation is set to aid the family of fallen Eupora Police Officer Keith Crenshaw

The Police Benevolent Foundation, Inc. and the Mississippi Division of the Southern States PBA are rallying behind the family of Eupora police officer Keith Crenshaw. Crenshaw died from injuries he sustained while deploying a spike strip across Highway 82 in an attempt to stop a car carrying three robbery suspects Wednesday morning.  The suspects saw the spike strip before arrival and veered into the median where Crenshaw had moved after deploying the strip.

Officer Crenshaw was a beloved officer who will be missed tremendously by the Eupora Police Department, as well as other surrounding law enforcement agencies.


The Police Benevolent Foundation has established an “Officer Keith Crenshaw Memorial Fund” at Regions Bank.  Donations can be made at any Regions Bank to assist in efforts to provide financial support to Officer Crenshaw’s family in this time of need.  Please ask for the Police Benevolent Foundation and then designate your donation to the “Officer Keith Crenshaw Memorial Fund.” Donations can also be made through the Police Benevolent Foundation’s website at  Simply click on the “Donate Now” link and be sure to designate the donation to the “Officer Keith Crenshaw Memorial Fund.” The Foundation will give 100% of the funds received to Officer Crenshaw’s family.

Mississippi PBA Division President Chris Skinner said, “Our thoughts, prayers, and support go out to Officer Crenshaw’s family during this difficult time.  This incident reminds us all of the dangers that law enforcement officers face and the community support that is needed for our brave men and women who protect us every day.”

It is with a heavy heart that the PBF and MSPBA ask for the help of the community, both locally and nationally, to aid in efforts to provide much needed support to this officer’s family in this time of distress.
